Great. The more spottings and spotters we have the easier it will be to try to out names to unknown spottings.

Thanks for the information about the mission, I've joined already and will discover more Indonesian arthropods, I ask my students to join also :)

What a great spot. I can imagine they are very hard to find.

Would you consider adding this to Arthropods of Indonesia mission. It's here if you are interested. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1773...

Nice spotting, this is a Chorotypus grasshopper.
In Borneo, you could only get them from deep jungles.
I have only seen one before from Bako, Sarawak.
